Additional Notes

From The Publisher*THE MYTH OF THE MINOTAUR? THAT'S BULL.   I think you may have heard of me, but might not know my name: Half man. Half bull. Outcast. Untame. Minotaur, Ruler of the Stars (in younger days), or Monster of the Maze . . .   Much like Lin-Manuel Miranda did in Hamilton, the  New York Times best-selling author David Elliott turns a classic on its head in form and approach, updating the timeless story of Theseus and the Minotaur for a new generation. A rough, rowdy, and darkly comedic young adult retelling in verse, Bull will have readers reevaluating one of mythology's most infamous monsters.

Review Quote*David Elliott's Bull does for mythology what Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton has done for U.S. history. Teens of all genders and reading levels will devour this salty, quick-witted retelling and the timely truth of this story: It takes a god to make a boy into a beast, but it is us humans who turn him into a monster. I loved this book." -Allan Wolf, author of The Watch That Ends the Night and New Found Land "Stunning, explosive, and brilliantly-crafted. BULL is a perfect addition to the new canon of classics." -Liz Wright, Brazo Books "Dark, disturbing, and devastatingly good." -Elana K. Arnold, author of Infandous and Sacred "What an extraordinary book! Saucy and thoroughly modern, Bull feels both ageless and of our time, and is, above all, a bracing, unforgettable read." -Jane Brox, author of Brilliant: The Evolution of Artificial Light "The voices in this poem-as much hip hop as epic-taunt in a spirit that is at once modern ghetto and ancient philosopher. As a lover of the Greek tales, I'm so grateful for this dizzying ride." -Donna Jo Napoli, author of Sirena , Bound , and Beast "Irreverent and witty, the book is a fantastic labyrinth of its own, with new turns and twists that deliver us to the wisdom at its center." -Kyoko Mori, author of One Bird and Shizuko's Daughter "A remix told in striking and affecting verse, BULL offers a modern, haunting look at this story of power, lust, love, and revenge" -Sara Grochowski, Brilliant Books "An entirely refreshing twist on the indelicate undercurrents of Greek Mythology, BULL will inspire today's readers to rediscover the classics." -Sara Hines, Eight Cousins Books "
